The main mode pits a user-created rider against the CPU riders. From the creation screen, there are two different career paths to take—a racing career, or a freestyle career. The racing career consists of straightforward races against computer opponents, while the freestyle career consists of doing different tasks to get through to the next level.
The Xbox version of the game has Xbox Live download support, allowing users to download different soundtracks, riders, and bikes off of the service. There is no Xbox Live multiplayer support. There is split screen multiplayer.
